    Talking Saab Turbo X ....

    Seen a lot of ads lately for the new saab Turbo X , the car the VXR should have been, looks like an awesome bit of kit, ready for some serious tuning with 4wd !!

    http://www.channel4.com/4car/rt/saab/turbo+x/18359/2

    Problem is with only 500 coming to the UK they won`t be affordable in the near future

    maybe a hint at the insignia vxr though ...

    i'd be a happy man if they launch the Insignia with that engine/drivetrain combo.....


    ( better tailpipes than on the VXR imho as well ) ( )

    not liking those alloys at all, looks like we're going to end up back on 3-spokes in the near future!

    and although it looks stealthy, it still looks a bit tame....maybe it's the colour though

    Its too overpriced for what it is, SAAB are also doing an AERO X which will use the same 4WD system as the Turbo X etc and is almost as fast. Except it will be considerably cheaper.


    Quote from elsewhere

    We also had the chance to drive a 252bhp V6 Aero with XWD fitted. It felt just as fast, a touch smoother and the four-wheel drive dug in equally hard. Yet when you consider the prices of the Turbo X and Aero – £32,495 and £28,695 respectively – nearly £4,000 for an extra 30bhp and some minor styling tweaks looks poor value.

    Aero X also doesn't get the trick electric Limited Slip Diff, which the Turbo X does.
